Campus Computer Network

The UTPB Odessa campus and the CEED campus are served by the UTPB Local Area Network (UTPB LAN).  This network utilizes a combination of owned and leased fiber optic, copper, and wireless networking technologies to deliver high-speed data connectivity to all campus buildings, offices, classrooms, and housing units.

The campus data backbone consists of a 2GB/s fiber optic transport system implementing the TCP/IP protocol over Ethernet.  Wired and wireless connectivity for all student housing units is provided by the ResNet network which is operated and managed by Apogee.

The campus LAN is connected to the global Internet through the facilities of the Texas Higher Education Network (THEnet).  This network is managed by the UT System Office of Telecommunications Services (UTSOTS) for the benefit of all University of Texas Institutions.
